    Okay, so:

    I did it.
    Now my CPU goes up to 3,9 GHz just like I wanted.

    But there is new issue - after that my temperatures increased from 78°C - 80°C to 92°C - 95°C and thermal throttling occurs and at this point my CPU goes down to 3,7 - 3,8 GHz.

    I didn't touch Watts in ThrottleStop Turbo Power Limits, just changed BIOS settings according to post #31.

    Any ideas?

    My last -0,160 UV tries ended with crash so I am not sure if higher undervolting is the solution.

    the best option in my opinion is to do a repaste on CPU and GPU using THERMAL GRIZZLY KRYONAUT which helped me to keep the temps around 80-83 degree

    Yeah, this would be the best move if I wouldn't have warranty.

    I think I will just return to stock BIOS settings for now as just few games use full 8750h potencial.

    3,2 GHz is not that bad overall.

    For the IMON just don't place "+" on the prefix, just make sure it is "-" since you are adding a negative offset to the reported TDP.

    IMON tweak doesn't brick or screw up, but the AC / DC Loadline does if you left your old UV settings on. Once AC / DC Loadline is lowered, the UV offset you can go for will be less further, like on mine if I set the AC / DC Loadline to 180 I could UV the cache to -150mV, but with AC / DC Loadline to 1, I could only UV to -40mV otherwise it'll start showing errors in benchmarks.

    The advantage of setting the AC / DC loadline is to have a more stablized voltage, stablized voltage also means stablized temperature, the temperature will fluctuate less.
